The Office of Student Success & Inclusion

Jeremy Whittaker

On behalf of the Office of Student Success staff, welcome to LCON!  As a part of the Loewenberg College of Nursing, the SSI team strives to foster opportunities for learning, leadership, and personal and professional growth for our students through their didactic, clinical, and co-curricular experiences.  Our evidence-based approach of lifelong learning being inextricably bound to engagement aligns with LCON’s core values of Caring, Leadership, Diversity, and Integrity which guide the work we do within the LCON community. Ultimately, this purposeful approach to our work is at the heart of the SSI philosophy and our commitment to fostering a culture of belonging for all.  

We are dedicated to providing wrap around support for all of our students. An increased emphasis on student wellness, resilience, academic support/accountability, leadership development and cultural competence highlights this personalized support.  The SSI team looks forward to working with you during your LCON academic journey – whether that be through student organizations,  your clinical/didactic experiences, or navigating academic or personal challenges.  Don't hesitate to get in touch with us with questions, concerns, or just to chat.  

Wishing you much success,
